Thanks Paul,

Have they all settled in now in Dubai? It was good to meet them at RIPE68.

Looking forward to working with you and your team here in the region.

Dear colleague,

I am delighted to announce that the RIPE NCC regional office in Dubai, UAE has officially started its operations in supporting its members and the Internet technical community.

As you know, the RIPE NCC has been progressively increasing its outreach activities with a particular focus on the Middle East region. With the continued growth of this region and direct feedback from our membership and stakeholders in the region, it has become clear that more resources are needed locally to meet the expectations of our membership, the Internet community and local governments.

The RIPE NCC regional office in Dubai is dedicated to maintain and expand its activities and expertise across the Middle East countries in cooperation with all our stakeholders in order to address the diverse needs of its members and the Internet community.

It is with pleasure that I introduce Chafic Chaya, Regional Communications Manager - Middle East, focused on membership, government, media and stakeholder relations and Hisham Ibrahim, Regional Program Manager - Middle East, focused on membership, technical community and technical initiatives and programs. Chafic and Hisham join Sandra Gijzen and Paul Rendek to form our RIPE NCC team in Dubai. We now have a team of four RIPE NCC staff based in the Dubai offices and the ability to communicate with our members in Arabic.

All registration services remain located in our main offices in Amsterdam, but our regional presence can provide local support to ensure a smooth experience with the RIPE NCC.

I look forward to increasing our presence and working closer with the technical community in this important part of our service region. Below, I have enclosed a short profile of Chafic and Hisham as well as their contact details. I encourage you to contact them and establish relations so that the RIPE NCC can better serve the members and community in the Middle East.

Best Regards,
Paul Rendek
Director of External Relations
